“Olympic View Golden Eagles BELONG, LEARN, and LEAD to SUCCEED!”

This is our school mission statement. Our district has adopted an Equity Board Policy. I encourage you to click the link to read. A few have asked if there is a new equity curriculum.

Using California Education Code and curricular frameworks provided by the California Department of Education, all staff are expected to follow Board of Education policies to plan, implement, and assess grade-level content.

We strive to meet the many and varied needs and interests of our school community as we make decisions about purchasing books and materials for students, and that includes making sure we have materials that reflect diverse identities. It’s a responsibility we take seriously, not only because we want to make sure students see themselves and one another reflected in our curriculum, but because we want to make sure we aren’t ignoring our responsibility regarding pupil nondiscrimination.

It’s important to remember that every community is diverse. This includes diversity of opinions and beliefs as well as identities, whether that diversity is highly visible or not. Additionally, people who are not visibly “diverse” regarding identity or beliefs often appreciate having diverse materials.

Message from the Superintendent

Returning To School: A Milestone Reached, Together
  Dear Parent/Guardian:
Welcome back to school! I am so excited to see that students and staff will be at our campuses again full-time, starting on Wednesday, July 21. I know the past year and a half has been tough on all of us. Thankfully, we continue to reach new milestones in combatting COVID-19. A full return to school is the greatest sign yet of a return to normalcy. Safely returning to in-person instruction in the new school year is a priority to local, state and federal officials alike. Vaccination is currently the leading public health prevention strategy to end the COVID-19 pandemic, and San Diego County continues to be a leader in the state in regards to vaccination rates. In addition, please know that each of our schools has gone to great measures to keep students and staff safe. Our campuses and operating procedures will not look the same as pre-pandemic. Schools have upgraded ventilation systems and/or added purifiers to each classroom; received hand sanitizer and other safety supplies, and adapted to continuously evolving safety guidance. We are confident schools are the best and safest places for students to learn and succeed. Procedures continue to evolve. Just last Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its guidance to stress the full reopening of schools and recommended masks only be worn by the unvaccinated. Our state is taking a safer, cautious approach. As of this writing, masks are still required when indoors in K-12 schools, according to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). While students are on campus, masking indoors is required for everyone—including for vaccinated individuals. Once ALL students are off campus, fully vaccinated people are not required to mask indoors, according to CDPH. Students will be able to remove their masks outdoors. Our schools will make every effort to serve meals outdoors. Where cafeterias or group dining rooms must be used, our schools will work to keep students together in their stable groups, and practice physical distancing as much as possible. Additionally, our schools will practice and emphasize hand hygiene before and after eating. As an elementary school district, we note that nearly all of our schools serve children under the age of 12 who are not eligible for vaccination at this time. Therefore, we follow guidance that emphasizes implementing multi-layered prevention strategies (e.g., using multiple prevention strategies together consistently) to protect people who are not fully vaccinated, including students, teachers, staff, and other members of their households. We have stressed multiple prevention strategies throughout the pandemic .You may have additional questions about school procedures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 when we resume classes. I invite you to tune in to our Virtual Town Hall meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 15 to hear updates about the new school year. Click here at 6 p.m. on that date to access the meeting. As a reminder, CDC’s guidance is not binding for California schools, which must abide by requirements from state and county public health. State officials have indicated that they will review and align state guidance with the CDC’s. We will alert you when the California guidance is issued. Again, we look forward to welcoming students and their families back to school on July 21.

Sincerely,
Francisco Escobedo, Ed.D.

SuperintendentRegreso a la escuela: Una meta lograda, juntosApreciables padres y tutores:¡Bienvenidos de regreso a la escuela! Estoy muy emocionado porque los estudiantes y el personal estarán de regreso a nuestros planteles por tiempo completo, empezando el miércoles, 21 de julio. Sé que el pasado año y medio ha sido difícil para todos nosotros. Afortunadamente, nosotros continuamos logrando metas nuevas en nuestra lucha contra el COVID-19. El regreso pleno a la escuela ha sido el indicador más grande del regreso a la normalidad. El regreso seguro de la instrucción en persona para el nuevo año escolar es una prioridad para las autoridades, ya sean locales, estatales o federales. Actualmente la vacunación es la estrategia de salud preventiva al frente del público para acabar con la pandemia del COVID-19, y el condado de San Diego continúa siendo un líder en el estado en cuanto a las tasas de vacunación.Además, favor de tomar en cuenta que cada una de nuestras escuelas ha implementado medidas mayores para mantener la seguridad de los estudiantes y el personal. Nuestros planteles y procedimientos de operación no serán iguales como antes de la pandemia. Las escuelas han actualizado los sistemas de ventilación y/o agregado purificadores de aire a cada salón; se han suministrado con desinfectante para manos y otros artículos de seguridad y también se han adaptado a las pautas de seguridad que continuamente cambian. Estamos confiados que las escuelas son los mejores y más seguros lugares para que los estudiantes aprendan y sean exitosos.Los procedimientos continúan cambiando. Apenas este pasado viernes, el Centro de Control y Prevención de Enfermedad (CDC) actualizó sus pautas para enfatizar la reapertura plena de las escuelas y recomendó que los cubre boca sean utilizados únicamente por quienes no han sido vacunados. Nuestro estado está tomando una postura más segura y cautelosa. Al escribir este informe, los cubre boca aún son requeridos en interiores en las escuelas K-12, según el Departamento de Salud Pública de California (CDPH). Mientras los estudiantes estén en el plantel, se requiere el uso de cubre boca por toda persona en los interiores de las instalaciones – incluyendo a personas vacunadas. Cuando TODOS los estudiantes salgan del plantel, entonces no se requiere el uso de cubre boca en el interior por las personas que están completamente vacunadas, según el CDPH.Los estudiantes pueden quitarse el cubre boca en el exterior. Nuestras escuelas harán el esfuerzo de servir los alimentos al aire libre. Si se tienen que utilizar las cafeterías o salas para comer en grupo, nuestras escuelas harán el esfuerzo de mantener juntos a los estudiantes en sus grupos establecidos y practicar el distanciamiento físico lo más posible. Además, nuestras escuelas practicarán y enfatizarán la importancia de la higiene de las manos antes y después de comer.Como distrito de escuelas primarias, tomamos en cuenta que casi todas nuestras escuelas sirven a niños menores de 12 que por el momento no son elegibles para la vacuna. Por lo tanto, seguimos las pautas que enfatizan la implementación de estrategias de prevención de niveles múltiples (por ejemplo: el uso consistente y cohesivo de varias estrategias de prevención) para proteger a las personas que no están completamente vacunadas, incluyendo a estudiantes, maestros, personal y otros miembros de sus familias. Nosotros hemos enfatizado múltiples estrategias de prevención en el transcurso de la pandemia.Usted podría tener preguntas adicionales sobre los procedimientos en las escuelas para prevenir la propagación del COVID-19 cuando regresemos a clases. Los invito a que se conecten a nuestro Foro Comunitario a las 6 p.m. del jueves, 15 de julio para escuchar sobre las actualizaciones referente al nuevo año escolar. Haga clic aquí a las 6 p.m. en esa fecha para obtener acceso al foro.Como recordatorio, las pautas del CDC no son obligatorias para las escuelas de California, las cuales deben sujetarse a los requerimientos de salud pública estatal y del condado. Las autoridades estatales han indicado que van a revisar y alinear las pautas estatales con las del CDC. Les notificaremos en cuanto se emitan las pautas de California.De nuevo, esperamos dar la bienvenida a los estudiantes y a sus familias de regreso a la escuela el 21 de julio.Atentamente,Dr. Francisco Escobedo
Superintendente
